November 2009

During the past month, new information and activities have been added to the United States Mint H.I.P. Pocket Change™ Web site.  To help you learn "What's New for You," we've listed and linked these features below.

November Coin of the Month:  The Northern Mariana Islands quarter is the sixth and final quarter in the District of Columbia and U.S. Territories Quarters Program.   The quarter's design uses images from the islands' wealth of history and natural resources.   After your students read the November Coin of the Month page, check out the related Teacher Feature for a fun classroom activity.

Veterans Day:  November is the month we celebrate our nation's veterans. Be sure to visit our Veterans Day page, which features great information on all of the coins and medals honoring veterans.   This page is linked to several Veterans Day teaching resources, including the Web Quest, lesson plans, and Teacher Features.

Thanksgiving:  Check out the Thanksgiving Day page to learn why and how we celebrate this special day, who the Pilgrims were, and where you can find related activities for your classroom.
